2022-07-13T10:23:31-04:00July 13th, 2022|Tags: , , , , , |

Leading Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Franchise Spreads Across the Golden State, Seizes Opportunity for Continued West Coast Development.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise leader Chem-Dry recently announced two major signed agreements in California, furthering the brand’s presence in the state. One signed agreement covers the Sacramento area, and the other covers Greater San Bernadino. Chem-Dry is on the fast-track for growth in 2022, with 23 signed agreements year-to-date and a goal of adding 70 franchises by the end of the year.

Heading up the recent California development for Chem-Dry in California are franchisees Cliff Mastrolia and Dada Ojeisekhoba. Mastrolia’s Chem-Dry territory covers Greater Sacramento, including Placer and El Dorado counties, and Ojeisekhoba’s territory includes San Bernadino and Riverside counties.

Mastrolia is a Sacramento-area local with a military background and experience in management and sales, most recently working as a bail bondsman for ten years. Ojeisekhoba is located in Orange County, and has worked in the cleaning industry for over 20 years before finding Chem-Dry. Both franchisees saw potential for growth in their service areas, and chose the brand due to its extensive recognition for quality and success over the past 45 years.

“People have been moving out of the larger hubs in California like Los Angeles and San Francisco, which presents a great opportunity for Cliff and Dada’s service areas,” said Ed Quinlan, President of Chem-Dry, part of the BELFOR Franchise Group family of brands. “We are thrilled to have them on our team as we continue to increase Chem-Dry’s brand presence on the West Coast.”

Placer and Sacramento counties have experienced decent growth compared to other areas of the state, with both counties seeing increases in population during the pandemic. San Bernadino and Riverside counties also noted a population increase despite nearby Orange County seeing a decline. Chem-Dry is poised for growth in the state, with over 250 franchises in operation across California.

Chem-Dry, the Healthy Home Authority®, currently serves more than 11,000 homes and businesses each day across 55 countries. Over the next six months, the 45-year-old brand aims to further increase its North American coverage by adding 50 franchises across the United States and Canada.

Chem-Dry creates cleaner, healthier indoor environments with its proprietary equipment and solutions for carpet, upholstery, granite countertops and hard floor surfaces, such as wood, tile and laminates. In further testing of its processes, a study conducted by a leading independent laboratory concluded that the Chem-Dry Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning method removes an average of 98% of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery. Chem-Dry has a national partnership with the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), working to raise awareness and provide education on the importance of indoor air quality in maintaining the health and safety of homes and businesses.

Since its launch in 1977, Chem-Dry has become the recognized market leader by building a robust network of 1,800 franchises across the country. Most recently, the brand was recognized for the second year in a row by Global Franchise Magazine as the Best Property Maintenance Franchise, validating the premier status of the brand. It recognizes Chem-Dry for what it does best, which is supporting its franchisees while also making homes and workplaces cleaner, healthier and safer. Additionally, Chem-Dry was one of the top 500 franchises in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Chem-Dry ranked on this prestigious list for its outstanding performance in unit growth, financial strength and stability, and overall brand power.

To meet the growing demand for its innovative services, the company is actively seeking community-minded entrepreneurs to join the mission of delivering safer, healthier spaces across the globe. With territories available in prime markets nationwide, Chem-Dry is an industry-leading brand in a large and growing category, that offers its franchise network world-class training and support.

redbox+ Experiencing Rapid Expansion with a Burgeoning Support System

2022-03-31T14:07:00-04:00March 31st, 2022|Tags: , , , , , |

Roll-off Dumpster Rental Company Identified as Fastest-Growing Franchise; Supporting Nationwide Growth by Adding Key Team Members.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Since its inception, redbox+ has become the answer to the construction, renovation, and restoration industries’ woes on how to keep job sites clean and efficient.

The brand’s innovative, patented roll-off dumpsters as well as its promise of delivering them on-time has led to tremendous expansion for redbox+ over the past year. It wrapped up 2021 with upwards of 300 franchise territories and over 80 franchisees across the country. By the end of 2022, redbox+ is expecting another year of double-digit unit growth by adding individuals to the franchise system who have a desire to be independent, and are dedicated to providing the highest level of customer care.

“Our franchisees are proud to live and share the redbox+ story every day. We have a special system of individuals who come from various professional backgrounds — but what brings us all together is our mission to lead the industry in customer service and quality of support,” said Tim Fagan, President of redbox+. “We’ve found that once customers try redbox+ and experience our service combined with our unique line of roll-off containers, they stay with redbox+.”

Since becoming a part of the BELFOR Franchise Group, the company has invested in bolstering its redbox+ franchise support team in order to have a strong foundation for its continued national expansion. The brand recently added new regional business coach Aaron Stone, and Stephan Taub, as franchise development director. Another recent hire is Alex Trent, who brings strong overall marketing experience as marketing coordinator.

As opposed to other dumpster rental companies, redbox+ provides a wider variety of roll-off containers, including its patented combined roll-off dumpster and portable toilet “Elite” product line. Redbox+ holds a 90 percent retention rate with contract partners and has a growing residential DIY sector with whom its smaller roll-off dumpsters are very popular. Additionally, franchisees are supported by ongoing national marketing, local marketing tools, operational business coaching, and a franchise model that provides low labor costs.

About redbox+

The redbox+ concept began as an idea hand-drawn on a notepad seeking a better solution for the waste removal industry. Today, it has nearly 300 territories across the U.S. while continuing to offer the only patented combination portable toilet and roll-off dumpster container. In 2022, Entrepreneur magazine recognized redbox+ in the top half of its prestigious ‘Franchise 500’ list and identified it as one of the ‘Fastest-Growing Franchises’ worldwide at #59 and in the U.S. and Canada at #46, and one of the ‘Top Home-Based & Mobile Franchises’ at #53.

N-Hance Wood Refinishing Sets Sights on New World of Opportunities in 2022, Aims to Award 40 Franchises

2022-01-05T11:05:41-05:00January 5th, 2022|Tags: , , , , , |

Leader in Cabinet Refinishing & Hardwood Floor Continues to Capitalize on Pandemic-Induced Home Remodeling Surge.

LOGAN, Utah — Consumer demand for home improvement projects remains steadfast – especially as the pandemic-inflected increase in time spent around the house becomes the norm and home costs continue to rise across the country. N-Hance Wood Refinishing® has seen the demand first-hand with some franchise owners reporting double digit increases in consumer leads year-over-year. Prospective franchisees are taking note as N-Hance closed out 2021 with more than 25 new franchise openings and projects to award 40 franchises this year.

While homeowners turned to Do-It-Yourself projects throughout 2020 and 2021, there’s a trend in leaving projects such as big kitchen remodels, home office, and flooring to the professionals, according to the Lending Indicator of Remodeling Activity.

N-Hance’s multi-service offerings model continues to drive revenue for franchisees, while providing customers with quality work. For example, Cabinet Door Replacement has helped grow N-Hance’s average ticket price to nearly $5,000 over the past few years, while reducing labor. Around 53% of its franchisees are offering this service through N-Hance’s preferred vendor, with it generating around 27% of their revenue. All of N-Hance’s cabinet services offerings account for 79% of total revenue.

“With a strong consumer demand for large-scale home renovations, we have worked hard to equip our franchisees with the right tools and resources to deliver on every project and consumer need,” said D’Wayne Tanner, Senior Vice President of Franchise Sales. “Their success is our success. We had a great 2021 which has put us in a position to have an even better 2022. We look forward to raising the bar and accelerating our development strategy, leveraging the surge in the home services industry to continue to meet all of our growth and performances goals.”

The brand’s achievements have not gone unnoticed as the franchise industry has honored N-Hance with several recent award wins including earning a spot on Franchise Time’s prestigious 2021 Top 400 ranking that names the largest U.S.-based franchise systems by systemwide sales to better encompass the biggest brands in franchising along with promising concepts in growth mode.

N-Hance sets the industry standard for hardwood refinishing. Helping lead the company’s growth is its one of a kind “Lightspeed® instant curing system” for hardwood cabinets and floors which saves customers time and money over the traditional refinishing, refacing or replacing alternatives. Decades of experience paired with backing by franchise powerhouse, BELFOR Franchise Group makes N-Hance a proven investment opportunity that is primed for growth in this new era fueled by self and home-improvement.

In the midst of the booming home services industry, N-Hance franchisees have an advantage through access to one of the most comprehensive initial and ongoing training programs in the industry. N-Hance is also an affordable, highly scalable opportunity with strong profit-potential. The initial investment to begin operations of a new N-Hance franchise ranges from $52,369 to $168,747, and the top quartile of franchisees average over $840,000.

Z PLUMBERZ Offers Advice Ahead of Brown Friday, Busiest Plumbing Day of the Year

2021-10-20T12:24:40-04:00October 20th, 2021|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Fast-growing plumbing franchise shares tips to avoid holiday disasters.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Many people know the Friday after Thanksgiving as “Black Friday,” the most popular shopping day of the year – but it’s also the busiest day of the year for plumbers. In the plumbing industry, it’s known as “Brown Friday,” thanks to an increased use of kitchens and bathrooms during food preparations and large gatherings, this day brings a significant increase in plumbing, sewage and drain-related issues to homes and businesses.

Since the holiday season can be harmful to drainage and septic systems – especially backed up sinks and malfunctioning garbage disposals – Z PLUMBERZ, a full-service and fast-growing residential and commercial plumbing franchise, has several tips for home and business owners to help prevent plumbing disasters.

  • Dispose of all food items in the trash can, especially items like fruit skin and pulp, potato and onion peelings, eggshells, poultry bones and skin, and pumpkin seeds, which can clog drains and damage garbage disposals.
  • Fatty oils and grease should be placed into containers and thrown away with garbage. While it is a common myth that fats can be poured down the drain if followed by hot water, the truth is the fats will eventually cool down and clog pipes.
  • Remind your family – particularly kids – that only human waste and toilet paper should be flushed down the toilet. Flushing food or wet wipes can cause significant sewage issues including overflow or clogs, since these items do not dissolve properly.
  • If you’re having guests stay overnight, consider spreading out showers and laundry loads to be cautious of overusing your water heater and drains.

“With the flurry of cooking and entertaining happening at homes and businesses close to and on Brown Friday, people often forget about these common plumbing mistakes that could end up causing them a major headache – so we want to make sure our customers and communities know what to do,” said Matt O’Rourke, President of Z PLUMBERZ. “We hope that providing these tips will help the holidays and your pipes flow smoothly.  But to make sure we’re ready, we increase staffing around Thanksgiving and our team of experts is available 24/7 in case of holiday plumbing emergencies.”

Named a Hot Franchise Category for 2021 by Entrepreneur Magazine, Leader in Hardwood Floor & Cabinet Refinishing Ignites Aggressive Statewide Development.

BOSTON — The demand for home improvement projects continues to surge – especially amid the recent housing boom and increased work-from-home flexibility – with Entrepreneur Magazine naming the industry as one of the hottest franchise categories in 2021. N-Hance Wood Refinishing® has seen the demand first-hand with some franchise owners reporting double digit increases in consumer leads year-over-year. With increased demand and record-breaking systemwide performance, the brand has announced plans to add 10-12 new territories throughout Massachusetts, secured through strategic partnerships, within the next five years.

N-Hance closed out 2020 with record-breaking system-wide sales growth, and 2021 has shaped up to be equally as prosperous. Building on the momentum of strong month-over-month performance, the N-Hance franchise network is kick-starting development goals in multiple states, pinpointing Massachusetts for franchise development. To meet the rising demand, N-Hance is actively seeking franchise partners in Boston and Springfield, with over 10 territories available.

The brand recently signed an agreement with local entrepreneur Kevan Bradley, who will launch and operate his franchise in the suburbs of Boston. N-Hance also recently partnered with franchisee Seth Gaudreau, whose territories include Berkshire and Hampshire counties as well as parts of southern Vermont. Interested investors would join a solid network of five existing franchisees in the market, resulting in strong consumer brand awareness to drive business.

“We’ve recently brought in several exceptionally strong franchisees across the state who’ve collectively raised the bar and created a great culture and reputation for our services. We look forward to continuing this legacy as we create new opportunities for entrepreneurs throughout Boston and Springfield,” said D’Wayne Tanner, Senior Vice President of Franchise Sales. “We are seeing interest from entrepreneurs who already own other types of home improvement businesses looking to diversify their portfolios, as well as from people seeking entry into the booming industry with a franchise that has a proven track record of success.”

N-Hance’s ability to innovate and adapt throughout the pandemic has allowed the brand to remain steadfast and focused on growth. By quickly pivoting to support social distancing, the brand developed a process for virtual consultations that are easily executed via phone, computer or tablet, leaving consumers with a complete proposal, along with warranty, payment options, and availability to complete the project. This has proven to be critical now as the world continues to navigate COVID-19 infections and variants of the virus – adaptability is key to future business growth. The international franchise is on track to open 40 franchises by year end.

These achievements have not gone unnoticed as the franchise industry has honored N-Hance with several recent award wins including Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2021 Franchise 500 ranking – the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking that recognizes brands for their outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength, and brand power.

Market Leader Anticipates Continued Strong Demand as Cleaning & Restoration Industry is Named Hot Franchise Category for 2021.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — As the safety of homes and workplaces remains a top priority amid the pandemic, demand for property cleaning and restoration continues to surge, as evidenced by Entrepreneur Magazine naming the industry one of the hottest franchise categories in 2021. Industry leader Chem-Dry has experienced this demand first-hand as the brand enjoys its 33rd consecutive year as the number one-ranked carpet cleaning franchise by the magazine. With some franchise owners reporting double digit increases in consumer leads year-over-year, the growing demand led the brand to close out a very successful 2020 – which included signing over 80 franchises – positioning the market leader for another strong year.

Chem-Dry, the Healthy Home Authority®, currently serves more than 11,000 homes and businesses each day across 55 countries. Over the next 12 months, the 44-year-old brand aims to further increase its North American coverage by adding 75 franchises across the U.S. and Canada and expand its global footprint by signing four more international master franchises. Chem-Dry has already seen its domestic and international sales momentum from 2020 carry into the first quarter of the new year.

Known for making homes and workplaces cleaner, healthier and safer for decades, Chem-Dry remains committed to innovation, and even rolled out new products and services amid the pandemic, including the launch of its MicroPro Shield™ Service. This new service first disinfects hard surfaces and sanitizes soft surfaces using a hospital-grade disinfectant that is approved by the EPA for use against SARS-CoV-2 (the cause of COVID-19). Then, the Chem-Dry technician applies a protective antimicrobial coating that kills odor and stain-causing bacteria and algae on contact for up to 90 days.

“Being able to serve and protect our customers amid the pandemic and give them greater peace of mind has been very meaningful and rewarding for our franchisees,” said Ed Quinlan, President of Chem-Dry, part of the BELFOR Franchise Group family of brands. “Our teams continue to work tirelessly to keep our brand and our franchisees ahead of the curve in providing high-quality services that deliver on our commitment to making spaces cleaner and healthier. While the last 12 months have been challenging, they’ve also allowed us to showcase our innovation and solidify our position as the Healthy Home Authority®. And we look forward to another year of growth as we help even more home and business owners across the country stay safe and healthy.” 

Chem-Dry creates cleaner, healthier indoor environments with its proprietary equipment and solutions for carpet, upholstery, granite countertops and hard floor surfaces, such as wood, tile and laminates. In further testing of its processes, a study conducted by a leading independent laboratory concluded that the Chem-Dry Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning method removes an average of 98% of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery and an average of 89% of airborne bacteria when combined with a sanitizer, helping to improve indoor air quality. Chem-Dry has a national partnership with the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), working to raise awareness and provide education on the importance of indoor air quality in maintaining the health and safety of homes and businesses.

Since its launch in 1977, Chem-Dry has become the recognized market leader by building a robust network of 1,800 franchises across the country. To meet the growing demand for its innovative services, the company is actively seeking community-minded entrepreneurs to join the mission of delivering safer, healthier spaces across the U.S. With territories available in prime markets nationwide, Chem-Dry is an industry-leading brand in a large and growing category, that offers its franchise network world-class training and support.
